Secret Story

It’s been a while since my last post. My web surfing has been drastically reduced since starting a new job last month. I always wanted a career in music and for a while I felt like I had one since the majority of my days were spent surfing the web in search of good tunes.  Times have changed though so while I have a lot more money to feed my habit, I have less time to write about it. I’ll take it though.  June 7th not only marked the 52nd birthday of Prince Rogers Nelson which must be celebrated even if he chooses not to, it was also my 27th and my cousin’s 28th.  Sharing a birthday with arguably the greatest performer of our time is pretty cool but growing up celebrating it with one of my best and closest friends who happens to be related but not my twin is so much cooler. We have oddly similar tastes in a lot of things but were not always on the same page when it comes to what we listen to.  Some of my favorite memories though are times we spent together just chilling in the basement listening to and looking for music.  This is one of my favorites from back in the day, It always takes me back to that time in my life which was pretty special to me. I have to admit it’s pretty wild that we were listening to stuff like this in our pre-teen years but it was albums like “Secret Story” that developed my musical palate. If you’re not familiar with Pat Metheny you have to wait until the 1:23 mark on the clip below to hear him do his thing. Happy birthday Cuzzo!
